Daenerys Targaryen has had several different looks over four seasons of Game of Thrones, and they’re all beautiful. The series has an incredible costume designer in Michele Clapton. Instructables user PennyAdventure has made Dany’s Dothraki costume from the first season and recently made the cut-out dress from season four. Here’s how she put it together:
I ordered some white plisse pleated fabric from International Pleating on Etsy and dyed it a foggy blue/gray using RIT Pearl Gray powdered dye that was heavily diluted. I used the same dye on the “dragons scale” fabric I used to make the bra part. This was created by tacking the scaley stuff onto an existing bra, and attaching it to the strappy part when it was on my body. The straps were made from a navy blue cloudy fabric to mock the texture. I cut 1.5 inch strips using chalk and the table edge to make a very straight line. The edges were folded in half an inch and fusible interfacing was ironed on to the body-side. I bought gold netted trim and blue/purple satin microbraided trim to stitch all along the shoulders and the front of the straps to emulate the dragon scale texture. I also dusted some diluted gold metallic fabric along the straps. I will eventually replace the skirt with a fuller suburst form.
The wig is the Yvonne model by Sepia in platinum. She styled it by straightening the curls and then braiding the wig into loose thick braids to add some waves.
